Why We Hike

Qannik and Kiska say our Saturday afternoon hike was excellent.

Cheoah clearly still has some energy left.

Notice all of the movement she achieved?

    You all look really tired and happy, it must have been an AWESOME hike 🙂

    Licks and lots of slobber,

    We subscribe to the same view of trail time with the pups!

    Great sleepy photos.

    We are all crashed out, too. Sundays are hike-days!!

    Yep, that head lift shows Cheoah could have walked at least another mile.

    Funny, Mom says that we are going to start our long hikes again soon, too. (With all the snow, our regular trail has long since been buried, but it’s been so warm the last week that Mom says she’s going to check to see if it is hike-able yet.) Something about how Abby has too much energy at night! 😉

    Our mom talks about the “get ’em tired, keep ’em tired” philosophy. Any idea what that means?

    Tired little huskies are good huskies 🙂

    Have no fear – they will all be ready to go again soon.

    They look tuckered out, but so happy! 🙂

  16. Kari on March 13, 2011 at 11:26 am

    We love a tired pup 🙂


  17. Sagira on March 13, 2011 at 11:12 am

    Those are some tired pups. Love it! 🙂

    You’ll have to tell us your secret, because I think we’re doing it wrong! Morgan still seems to have energy left when we get back from our hikes. If I could see her zonked out like that just once, I’d feel like I accomplished something!

  19. Sage on March 13, 2011 at 9:24 am

    Nothing better than tired dogs!!

  20. tula on March 13, 2011 at 8:20 am

  22. Mya Boo Boo Painter on March 13, 2011 at 7:41 am

    Oh yes…walkies are a must!! Woo all look sufficiently wore down..for now.


  23. priscilla on March 13, 2011 at 3:07 am

    Everyone looks so happy and contented! That’s the beauty of hiking! It seems Hu-dad is the toughest guy as he has to drive the tired herd home safely too.
